LEA Partners supports the formation of SYNQONY as a market leader for software solutions for the circular economy

The union of the two renowned software providers 2R Software and S&F Datentechnik has created a leading group for software solutions in digital waste and environmental management in the DACH region

Karlsruhe, March 14, 2024:  LEA Partners (“LEA”), an entrepreneurial-minded private equity firm partnering with software companies to help them accelerate their growth, has made a strategic investment in SYNQONY.


SYNQONY, which started operations at the end of last year, brings together two leading specialists with over 60 years of combined experience in the digital waste and environmental management market. Over the past decades, 2R Software and S&F Datentechnik have established themselves as pioneers in their respective target markets and have achieved strong market positions. S&F is characterized by its expertise in combining municipal and commercial waste management as well as in process workflow at environmental authorities, while 2R is known as a leading provider of software solutions for commercial waste management companies and waste producers.


Robert Schmitz, founder and Managing Director of 2R Software GmbH and CEO of SYNQONY: "Our software solutions - clearo, david, emos and komvor - are now united under one roof and will be further developed using advanced digitalization technologies. This will allow us to create a seamless data flow that runs parallel to the physical waste flow. The result will be an efficient, transparent and sustainable digitalized circular economy. With LEA Partners, we have the ideal partner at our side to realize this vision."


Nils Berger from LEA adds: "The circular economy has inspired us from the very beginning due to its direct impact on the environment and overall sustainability. With 2R Software and S&F Datentechnik, we were able to facilitate the merger of two companies that can each look back on a long and successful history and whose know-how covers all areas of the circular economy. We are delighted to support the SYNQONY team in the transformation of the industry as a sparring partner and investor."
